Bag Lady…

If you’re anything like me than you’re a handbag lover! When I’m shopping the first place I head to is the handbag department, they’re my favorite item to shop for and my favorite accessory to add to my looks! The majority of my bags are larger totes and most end up becoming dark black holes, things are scattered everywhere and I can NEVER find anything unless I dump everything out! I just got this Clarity Clutch from TRUFFLE and it’s helped  to keep my totes organized! I love that it’s see through, it makes it so much easier to quickly grab my lipgloss or a binky when Isla needs one! I also use my Privacy Clutch to store makeup or lipgloss in my totes but it also doubles as a cute clutch for when I’m heading out on a date night with Drew!

    Oh wow, you always look absolutely stunning and every outfit is styled to perfection, no matter how “simple” it is. :)

  4. Kristen says:

    I use the same system and have something very similar to the clutch that I used to transport from purse to purse, but I love how the one is you showed is clear and you can see everything in it – so much easier! Definitely taking a look at them! Thanks for sharing!

    I love your Privacy Clutch! It’s the perfect size to fit in a handbag, but it also doubles up for carrying all your essentials! I might buy one immediately…I’ve been looking for a cute accessory to store all my day to day must haves.

  6. My large totes end up like black holes too, so a clutch is a much more efficient option!

    I adore nice handbags, they are a complete signature to a woman’s look. Perhaps sometimes even shouted status to the individual who’s sporting an expensive bag. To me it’s the true essence of the woman carrying the bag that created the styles and completed the look no matter what handbag she carries. Simply beautiful photos. :)

  17. Pauline S says:

    The blush top is gorgeous! I love that color and you look so good in it!!
    Also thanks for the tip. I too love larger totes and I had never thought about keeping a clutch to organize… AND that is also functional for when you don’t need to carry everything with you :)


  18. Hannah says:

    I love the elegance and simplicity of this outfit! I adore the nude blouse!


  19. Sandy says:

    i love the idea of a clear clutch inside a bag! my bags are like dark holes too!!

  20. It´s so funny how us women organize our stuff in bags that we put in our handbags ha!


  21. Mollie says:

    I love the clutch but I also love the contents of your bag! Honest Co hand sanitizer spray is everything!

    xoxo Mollie

  22. Amanda says:

    Love this and love reading your blog! It’s been so fun to see how you have settled in to being a mama while still keeping it real and fabulous. Curious as to what you use to curl your hair like this? Would love to see a tutorial or step by step (sorry if you’ve already done one and I am late to the party!). xox :)

  23. Jenny V. says:

    I”ve seen these and liked the idea of using them for travel when you have so much in a big tote or carry-on bag, little compartments that are see-through with like-items are perfect. I like that privacy clutch too-it’s leather and so I would totally use it as a clutch too.

  24. Danielle says:

    What a great idea!! I really love your top! So pretty!!


  25. Kaitlyn says:

    Love the clutch! Your outfit is amazing too.

  26. This is such a great casual yet dressed up look – I love it! Plus those clutches are fantastic!

  27. Reena says:

    The Clarity clutch is such a good idea as I always love big bags and everything is so unorganised inside them. I love how you style your Privacy Clutch though ♡

  28. Johanna says:

    This outfit is so simple and so wonderful. I love the red lips and your red nail colors. For me it’s the perfect outfit.

  29. I’m a bag lady too, I don’t care about shoes, I just want bagssss! :)

  30. Adele says:

    Such a great idea when using large totes! I love your top Rach!
    Hugs Adele xoxo

    Your hair is ridiculously pretty! Can I ask what size wand you use to get those curls!? Also….love the red lip on you.

    Love the outfit… And stunning photography!

  33. Rose says:

    Great idea! I’m always switching handbags and it would be nice to have something that keeps my essentials (hand lotion, roller ball perfume, lipstick, etc). I have become such a bag lady!! They really are the best accessory. I ordered the blouse you are wearing and it just arrived yesterday! I love the color and how substantial the material is in the front. I can tell it’s going to get a lot of use! Love how it looks on you! Your hair looks so pretty!!!

  34. Gorgeous makeup pieces. Love the outfit, especially the blush blouse.
    xo, Jodie

    Thanks for the inspo! I was looking for something like this for my tote and now I’ll be all organized!
    p.s. Love your blog and your style! Keep it up!

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
